PhotoRehab Cover Makeover 6

It’s time again for our PhotoRehab Cover Makeover Challenge. Lucile has set us a crazy challenge this week – the cover from a block of chocolate!!! Here is the original:

CoverMarkeoverChoc-2

We laughed about this cover, it’s not so appealing although Lucile assures me that the contents are delicious πŸ˜‰

I have to say, this sounded like a lot of fun and it was, although difficult to think of what to use at first. When I think of chocolate, I think rich and dark and decadent, so after lots of consideration and flipping through archived shots, I thought I would zoom in on one of my recent Dewy Gemstones shots and convert that to a cover.

Β I took my original shot in Lightroom and rotated it to portrait and cropped to a 16:9 ratio which I think is more like the shape of a block of chocolate πŸ™‚

Then I opened the photo in one of my favourite iPhone apps, Typic, and had some fun adding the blocks of colour and lettering. I discovered that there seems to be a limit in the number of text boxes you can add so I had to save the image halfway and reopen to add more text.

I may have accidentally borrowed the idea of dark purple from one of my favourite chocolate brands πŸ˜‰ Β I honestly didn’t think anything of it until later…

Ok now it’s your turn – what’s your take on this cover makeover challenge?

  1. A great use of that spectacular early-morning-moisture photo. I’ll have a square of your chocolate now, thank you. And thanks for the new sushi recommend too.

    I’m thinking of bypassing the challenge altogether and just going straight for the chocolate. 😊

    Yummy challenge! Funny how all those fair trade brands look so .. heu.. special. They should hire you head of the creative department, I bet they would sale much more. Will do my best to work on something this WE, but can’t guarantee anything yet. Except that I too will eat chocolate to get me in the creative mood πŸ˜‰

  9. The problem I have now after seeing the wrapper you created is simple: I cannot ever again buy the the odd one, because I’ll be thinking of this fabulous one you created. You see? That was your revenge!

    I think you misspelled “cacao”, but an otherwise good cover. I was surprised how well the background worked for this (and it does work well).
